Beta-Chi Chapter of Kappa Sigma University of Missouri Science & Technology P.O. Box 442100 Lawrence, KS 66044-2100 Address Service Requested ΚΣ C lumns Beta-Chi www.beta-chi.com @BXKappaSigma Beta-Chi of Kappa Sigma @bx_kappasigma Class of 2003 would consider donating it. There is a space in our Mother's Room that would fit a regular- sized, upright piano, but we could probably move some furniture around to fit something larger. It will be used by undergraduates recreationally and as a good hang out spot to play and listen to music. Beta-Chi has had a piano in the past, and it was a great tool to building brotherhood in the Chapter. Any donations would be appreciated, even if they aren't in the best shape. We will also transport the piano to Rolla if needed. Contact me if you can help us! Beta-Chi has a lot of things to look forward to. In November, campus holds a Greek awards banquet, and members of Beta-Chi are nominated for every award that will be given out. Mid-semester grades were released and Beta-Chi boasts our best mid- semester GPA in recent memory, which will hopefully carry over to the end of the semester. Spring recruitment has begun for Beta-Chi and we have a goal of 10-12 pledges for the upcoming semester—we are well on our way to meeting this goal. Beta-Chi will continue to pursue excellence in every area and exemplify the four pillars of Kappa Sigma every day.
